“If you hear a voice within you saying, ''You are not a painter,'' then by all means paint… and that voice will be silenced.”  - Vincent van Gogh. I was a scientist by profession, but raised surrounded by art in my native country of Spain. My father, a world renowned sculptor, and my mother, an accomplished painter, have always taught and inspired me. Although art has always been a strong calling, for most of my life I have felt torn between my scientific vocation and my deep love for art. Finally, while "experimenting" with oils and acrylics, I discovered I am an artist at heart. It was a true revelation and I have been painting ever since. Now, I feel extremely fortunate to be able to devote myself fully to my artistic passion. Van Gogh was right! Indeed, painting gives me a sense of balance and an extraordinary satisfaction. Each work is a fascinating adventure in composition, shape, color, and light.  During the painting process something magical happens. The subject matter and the emerging painting engage in an exciting dialogue, and the painting comes alive.  I sincerely hope you enjoy browsing through my art work as much as I enjoyed creating it.  Welcome and thank you for joining me!      Sonsoles
